After months of blaming white cops for killing Black men with impunity, rapper Tip "T.I." Harris agrees that rappers are more likely to be killed by other rappers.

Aspiring New York rapper Fivio Foreign tweeted about the rash of shootings that has taken the lives of several underground rappers including King Von, Mo3 and Dr. Rose, who were all shot to death in a 2 week span.

"Rappers are da most targeted people on planet earth. Target by police, by otha Rappers, by Media, By civilians & everybody else dat feel like we shouldnt have all da things we have!" Fivio tweeted.

T.I. shared the post on Instagram, and captioned it with the emojis for "No cap," meaning no lies.

Louisiana rapper Boosie Badazz, 38, nearly lost his life when he was shot after attending a vigil for his artist Mo3, rap name Melvin Noble, 28, who was killed on a Dallas freeway on Nov. 11.

In a recent interview, Boosie shared his opinion that rapping is dangerous work.

"We got the [most] dangerous job as rappers. Nobody has a more dangerous job."

Boosie is scheduled to undergo surgery to amputate one of his feet after suffering a gunshot wound to the lower leg.

Rapper Meek Mill (right) is speaking out about the escalating gang war on Atlanta's streets between factions led by rappers Quando Rondo and Lil Durk (pictured left).

Chicago rapper King Von, 26, was fatally shot by Rondo's crew member Timothy Leeks, 22, during a fistfight between Von and Rondo in Atlanta on Nov. 6.

Word on the street is Lil Durk's crew is gunning for Rondo, 21, who they believe is personally responsible for Von's death.

Durk, 28, reportedly bought every table at a nightclub where Rondo (pictured) was scheduled to perform this week. The club promoter canceled the show.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Meek, who is friends with Lil Durk, urged other rappers to "pick a side" rather than commenting on Von's death.

Meek tweeted: "Pretty soon everybody gone have to pick a side .... too much real sh*t going on too be cool wit everybody! [sic]"

Meek's message likely means more blood will be shed on Atlanta's pristine streets.

Hopefully, the mayor's office is monitoring the situation on social media before innocent lives are lost in Atlanta, which is now dubbed Chiraq South.

Rapper Jim Jones was exposed by incarcerated gang banger Tekashi69 as a card-carrying member of the Nine Trey Bloods street gang.

Tekashi69, also known as 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, sang like a canary in heat on the witness stand during his first day of questioning on Thursday.

The 23-year-old rapper testified as a government witness against several members of the Bloods in his ongoing racketeering case.

On Thursday, Teskashi confirmed that Jones was in the gang's back pocket. Later, under cross-examination, Tekashi also confirmed Bronx rapper Cardi B is a member of the notorious Bloods street gang.

It is a well-known fact that Cardi reps the Bloods. She often brags about her gang affiliation in rap lyrics.

"You joined the Bloods to advance your music year?" attorney Alex Huot asked Tekashi.

"Yes," Tekashi replied.

"You knew Cardi B was a Blood?" Huot asked.

"Correct," Tekashi said.

"You knew Cardi B made music videos with Bloods in the background?" the attorney asked.

"Correct. I didn't pay attention," Tekashi said.

Jones, who is a high-ranking member of the Nine Trey Bloods, was caught on a wiretapped phone call telling a godfather of the Nine Trey Bloods he'd "best get to violating" Tekashi 6ix9ine for splitting from the gang.

In a taped phone call dated Nov. 17, Jones and Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones (no relation) discussed Tekashi's comments denouncing the Bloods during a radio interview on Power 105. The men agreed that Tekashi had humiliated high-ranking Bloods member Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, who was the Brooklyn rapper's manager.

Mel Murda is heard telling Jones that Tekashi should be "super violated. Super duper."

Jim Jones responded, "Tell that n — - a he's not a gang member no more. He kicked out the whip. He was never a gang member ... He was always a money ploy for the gang members."

He added, "They gonna have to violate shorty 'cause shorty on some bull***t. He better get to get to violating."

"Violated" is street slang for murdering or torturing a gang rival.

Tekashi and Jordan were both arrested along with other gang members in a federal racketeering sting operation last year.

Tekashi is being held without bond in a federal detention facility awaiting trial.

Cardi B's life is in danger. The 25-year-old Bronx rapper was threatened on social media after she posted an Instagram.com image of herself wearing a blue fur coat last week. She captioned the image: "I hate flue but this coat was too poppin."
